"ROAD" TRIP: SONY'S POST-GRAMMY PARTY

At Sony Music's lavish post-Grammys bash, SME chieftain Rob Stringer and Columbia boss Ron Perry flank Lil Nas X, whose "Old Town Road" took home the gold for Pop Duo/Group and Video, and whose performance (featuring an eclectic array of guests) was a tentpole of the telecast. Later, the three saddled up their horses and rode off in search of a dispensary.


Stringer and Epic topper Sylvia Rhone join Camila Cabello, who delivered a couple of signature Grammy moments. In a related story, a HITS editor, inspired by the show, attempted to "sing the body electric." Happily, there were no lasting injuries.


RCA ruler Peter Edge poses with Stringer and multiple nominee H.E.R., who once again delivered a stellar performance that culminated with a wicked guitar solo. We're told many young viewers googled "guitar" to see what that whole thing was about.


Perry and Stringer with two more of Grammy night's stellar performers, Columbia's BNA nominee and Latin Rock, Urban or Alternative Album winner Rosalía and Rap/Sung Performance co-winner John Legend, along with Chrissy Teigen. They'd like to remind you, for your own safety, not to attempt "flamenco clapping" at home.
